Xiaomi Drone App makes a brief appearance online

Xiaomi drone rumours continue today with a purported iOS application showing up for download for a brief time before being taken down, but a few details are out of the bag.

Past rumours of a Xiaomi drone had mentioned gesture control support from a Mi Band, and even pricing of around just $100, but a new leak today puts a stop to at least one of those rumours.

Earlier today an iOS app made a brief appearance for a Xiaomi Drone. The app was pulled but not before some people managed to download it and take a look at the features available including 4K video support.

Apparently Xiaomi will be launching its drone with a built-in camera, like the current generation of prosumer DJI drones, and with capabilities of up to 4K there is no way the Xiaomi drone is going to cost as little as $100.

The app doesn’t show much else of the Xiaomi drones capabilities as it needs to be sync’d to a drone, but judging from the screenshots the drone will offer a FPS view when in flight and will be able to fly to GPS coordinates mapped in to it via the application.

Pricing is now expected to reach nearer 3000 Yuan, which is still much cheaper than a similar spec DJI drone which retailer nearer 5000 Yuan.

    -so drone about to be released
    we knew about the bracelet, it just adds a monochrome tiny screen. was supposed to launch now but they had some prod issues and got delayed to June
    the notebook is rumored to be released very soon
    the SoC is said to be almost ready, i kinda suspect it’s by Leadcore and A53 based on 14nm Samsung and that would be boring as hell and somewhat pointless
    VR i suspect it’s just a dock
    curved screen – everybody in China is rumored to have that in the second half of the year
    dual cam is rumored on the Redmi Note 4 but maybe they do it with the Note 2, just in case Apple does it. Apple being rumored to be doing it for zoom.
    split screen comes to Android 7 so everybody will have it when they go Android 7
    Robot – the Ninebot guys want to be all about robots, the vehicles are just a start so assuming that’s who will make a robot Xiaomi would market
    Note 2 might be the curved screen phone
    virtual card not sure what it means ,a Xiaomi issued virtual credit card using Xiaomi pay? or maybe it’s MVNO related?need a proper translation to understand what it is.

    Would be cool if they did more than just a dock in VR. A wired headset with 4k screen or dual 1080×1200 at 599 or 999CNY would have been nice (and doable). High res for video with games run at lower res.
